Melbourne, Australia

By |October 25th, 2012|

The Australian city of Melbourne has something to offer people of all ages and tastes. The city centre is only a short journey from where your cruise ship will dock. Ships usually dock at Station Pier, around 15 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, and the majority of cruise lines will offer a shuttle bus service into the city.

Melbourne is a very […]

Why I Didn’t Fall in Love with Australia

By |May 30th, 2012|

When I booked my trip to Australia and started to tell people that I was going, I was constantly met with ‘oh, you’re not going to want to come back!’ and I started to think maybe I wouldn’t. I know so many people who have recently moved to the land down under, or have spent an extended period of time […]

Amazing Australian Sunsets

By |May 21st, 2012|

I adore sunsets. Watching the sky change as the daylight fades and brings with it the dark of night is always fascinating. While I was in Australia I was lucky enough to see some of the best sunsets I’ve ever experienced, so I wanted to share a few of them with you all.

Which is your favourite sunset? And where have you seen […]

I’m in Australia!

By |May 9th, 2012|

You might have noticed things have been a bit quiet on Emma’s Travel Tales lately and for that, I’m sorry!

Will I Make it to 40 Countries Before I Turn 30?

By |January 31st, 2019|

What do you think of travel goals? Of people setting goals to reach a certain amount of countries/cities or continents visited? Many people aren’t fans of travel goals like this, thinking it makes people rush through places all in the name of ticking them off their list, rather than really exploring and enjoying them.

For me, I’m not too sure how […]

The Places I Probably Won’t Return to

By |January 28th, 2019|

There are places I visit when I travel that I fall head over heels in love with. Places that I wander around feeling blissfully happy and am reluctant to leave. Destinations that I dream of when I’m home and spend a high amount of time searching flight prices so I can plan a return trip.

Then, there are places I […]

Why Visiting 40 Countries Before I’m 30 is Important to Me

By |July 30th, 2018|

I’ve travelled to 39 countries so far.

39 countries across 5 continents.

39 countries out of some 195 countries in the world.

To some that might seem like an incredible achievement, whilst to others it may seem so tiny as to be almost inconsequential.

Well, to me, it’s important.

I feel proud to have set foot in 39 countries across the world. The majority have […]

Five-Years Self Employed (Who Can Believe It?!)

By |June 12th, 2017|

On the plane back from my latest trip to Portugal I was doing what I always love doing on planes. Sitting in the window seat, gazing out at the world below looking so small and I was lost in thought. I do all my best thinking on planes. I was thinking about everything – life, my business, my home, my […]
